Custard Eats! Spanish Chicken..MMM!

Hola amigos!  The sunshine has been out for the last few days and it seems that everyone I know is now talking about BBQ's again - a few of our family and friends have gone the whole hog already and actually had a BBQ too - blimey!  It must be warm!  Either that or the true British spirit has come out early and by that I mean that as soon as the sun shows itself (even if it is only 5 degrees outside) the shorts and BBQ's are dragged out of the cupboard - yeah you know who you are lol (I'm only jealous by the way)!

Now then, sunny weather and blue sky always make me think of Spain, so the other night in the Custard household we decided to make some lip smackingly tasty Spanish Chicken (well - Mr C did anyway!).  Oh lord it was nice - so nice that I thought I would share the recipe with you!

First of all, you need to take a wander to the farm shop if you have one for some top quality meat - we popped up to Bolster Moor Farmshop (I bet you would never have guessed that if you have read the rest of our blog!) and purchased a lovely pair of chicken breasts and a ring of super tasty Spanish Chorizo!  When you get home, chop the chicken and chorizo into chunks and fry off in a little oil - when browned, add mushrooms, a tin of tomatoes and then finally a Schwartz Spanish chicken herb mix (can be purchased from most supermarkets).  Stew down for about 20 minutes or so and hey presto - Spanish chicken!

Seriously - it really is as easy as that!  We had it with lemon and coriander cous cous but I'm sure it would be equally as nice with either boiled rice or a jacket potato!  To compliment the taste of this dish in true Spanish style, pour yourself a nice glass of Rioja - go on you know you want to!  Thats what we did anyway!

Mr Custards Spanish Chicken MMM!
